Are you going to France this travel season? Just a three hour train ride south of Paris is the City of Marseille. Get ready to experience beautiful scenery, history and Mediterranean cuisine! This Port City is a photographer’s dream. It is France’s second largest city so plan on spending at least a couple of days here.
Marseille averages 300 days of sunshine a year. Make sure you bring your walking shoes, there is hardly a flat street here. There are plenty of sidewalk cafes to quench your thirst and watch the people stroll by.
The architecture is amazing and each side of the city seems to have a different style.
Marseille is very different from Paris in look and feel, it is a city of different cultures and colors. From the street art in the Le Panier to the old sculptural doorways in the in the older parts of the city.
